"Don't be afraid to share your story with others"

Background Information

     Ten years ago I experienced an event no one wishes will ever happen to them- the death of one of my children.

            When sixteen-year-old Jeremy was murdered in 1998, Icoped by bottling up my feelings and not talking about his death with my family.   I  eventually decided to go back to school to become a counselor in order to help others cope with the death of their loved one. A pofessor encouraged me to write a journal as part of her healing prrocess and that journal became the blueprint of my newly-published book, November Mourning.

Searching for meaning and logic in a situation that did not make sense, I felt alone and out of control of my emotions”. “I wanted to find out what other parents had done to help them with their pain and grief.” “Writing the book was a healing process in of itself and began with journaling on my computer.  Helping others by listening to them share their story and to learn how to journal write has helped me heal and created a new goal- one of helping others who have experienced a traumatic loss find the comfort and upport to begin to heal.
